Overview
Details

At the extreme southern tip of Karmøy, with lighthouses guiding ships into Skudefjorden and across the North Sea, lies the charm and olde-world flavour of Skudeneshavn, home of the tall ship fleet.

There is a wonderful atmosphere in Skudeneshavn. Absorb the pervading calm of the narrow streets and alleyways as you relish fresh waffles and coffee in quaint cafes. Or revel in the vibrant festivities of festival days. Or simply explore wonderful walks, beaches and coastline. Idyllic Skudeneshavn is the new addition to Norway`s specially selected cultural environments that are protected by the Cultural Heritage Act. This provision provides the legal authority to protect a cultural environment because of the value of the area as a whole.

Founded on the incredible success of the early 19th Century herring harvests, the town grew at a startling rate. Even today, almost 130 original timber homes and seafront wharves have been preserved in "The Olde Town". It is fascinating to see how local craftsmen sought to recreate the splendour of Ancient Rome in their embellishments and ornamentation. Skudeneshavn Museum is just the place for rich servings of local history in authentic surroundings.

Guided tours The "Time Travel" app takes you on a historic wandering tour with a theatrical touch. Learn about the characters from times past that will show you their town as they know it.00:0000:35

You are also welcome to a theatrical walking tour every Sunday during July. Follow 18th century figures on an exciting trip through the history of the town. Meeting point: Tourist Office (Torget) at 13:00. 100 NOK.

For guided tour booking please contact: turist@karmoy.kommune.no/+47 99 24 11 30.

At the top of Søragadå you are welcomed into the Park by a wonderful ship's figurehead, the "Lady in the Park". She invites you to try this activity trail to get better acquainted with the history of Skudeneshavn. In the park you can get a good look at the "Moonstone", believed to have travelled with the ice, which may be 800 million years old! Walk to the vista point to enjoy the view, or test your potential sweetheart on the "Yes/No" park bench!

Citymap can be seen here.
